The dotZA Domain Name Authority (ZADNA) published draft rules aimed at further regulating the registration and operation of websites in South Africa.

    • Registrars must collect and store identity documents, physical addresses, and contact information of people wishing to register dotZA domains;
    • Licence and registrar fees payable via the registry — yet to be determined;
      Registrars must apply for a licence, which will be valid for 10 years;
    • If non-commercial registrars stop operating, they must provide customer registration data to Zadna;
    • Registrars must provide broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) information with their licence application — specifically details of BEE ownership.
